Frigidaire FEQ332ES

Companion Washer - FTF530FS Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Provides standard drying cycles that are effective for most types of fabrics. Does not offer advanced steam or sanitize options that counter wrinkles or bacteria and are available on about 60% of new dryers.  
Cycles Number of cycles and options is 75% lower than average and ranks in the bottom 1% of new dryers for POOR program selection and flexibility. Fewer cycles sometimes makes it harder to meet your fabric care needs.  
Drum Drum material is comprised of adequate but less desirable materials such as steel, plastic, or porcelain. Stainless steel is more durable and less resistant to damage, odors, discoloring, or static build-up.  
Capacity Capacity is 20% lower than average and ranks in the bottom 1% of new smaller size dryers. The FEQ332ES holds about 1.4 cu ft less laundry than the average new dryer. Smaller is cheaper, but less convenient.  
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot is 37% lower than average and ranks in the top 10% of new clothes dryers for BEST affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $55 less than the average new dryer.


Frigidaire FEQ332ES Dryer


Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
3 Settings - Less than average number of temperature settings. Most new dryers have five settings, and some even have six. The more settings available, the better the choice and care for your fabrics.  
Steam
Cycle
No Steam Cycles - Does not have the ability to generate steam and refresh lightly worn garments, or remove the wrinkles from clothing. About 60% of new dryers on the market now include a steam cycle.  
Sanitize
Cycle
No Sanitize Cycle - There is no special cycle that uses high-temperature heat or steam to sanitize pillows, stuffed animals, or other non-washable items. Helps remove bacteria and allergens.  
MSRP $549 - Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 51% lower than average and ranks in the top 5% of new clothes dryers for BEST overall price. You should also consider the Frigidaire FEQ332ES cost per cubic foot.
Warranty Frigidaire 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers offer a two-year warranty on parts, but dryer warranties are generally not as good as washers.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Stackable - Like most new front-load matching dryers, this model can be stacked vertically with a washer to save space, and allows one unit to be accessed comfortably at shoulder level. Great for small rooms.
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The Frigidaire FEQ332ES dryer door is flexible and can be switched to open from right-to-left (with a washer sitting on the right side), or left-to-right (with a washer sitting on the left side).
Drum
Light
No Drum Light - One of the very few dryers that does not include an internal drum light that comes on when the door is opened. Makes it more difficult to find a shirt, or make sure you've unloaded everything.  
Filter
Indicator
No Filter Indicator - There is no visual reminder on the FEQ332ES to change the lint filter. Most of us are remiss in this area and a clogged filter light is very helpful. Available on about 50% of new dryers.  
Dryer
Rack
No Dryer Rack - Does not include a dryer rack that allows tumble-free drying for items such as tennis shoes, ball caps, sweaters, or stuffed animals. Dryer racks can usually be purchased separately.  
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display No Display - One of the small group (20%) of new dryers that do not provide any visual information on wash program status and cycle time. Makes multi-tasking around the home a little more complicated.  
Controls Knob and Dial Controls - One of the small group (15%) of new dryers that use an older mechanical system that is functional, but does not offer the breadth of capability found with newer digital controls.  
Delay
Start
No Delay Start - Can't be programmed to start at a later time. About 25% of new dryers have the convenience of drying the laundry at a time that best fits your schedule. More important for washers than dryers.  
Custom
Cycle
No Custom Cycle - Like most new dryers, you cannot program a custom cycle with temperature settings and options that you use the most. Convenient capability that's only available on about 30% of new dryers.  
Phone
Diagnosis
No Phone Diagnostics - You can't connect to the manufacturer's repair center and have dryer problems directly diagnosed over the phone. About 20% of new dryers have some type of phone connectivity.  
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
